The Poetry Project


Valerie Hsiung & Ada Smailbegović

© Ivanna Baranova

Valerie Hsiung and Ada Smailbegović are poets of intense and intent curiosity. Each question they follow in their precise and expansive reflections on history, memory, ecology, epistemology is held up like a stone and then turned and spun in the light until all its composite elements begin to ring.


Masks are required at all Poetry Project events unless otherwise specifically noted. If you forget to bring your mask, we are happy to provide you with one. We also encourage all event attendees to take a rapid test the day of the event before heading to the church.

This in-person event will also be livestreamed via The Poetry Project's YouTube. Livestream captions will be available via a StreamText link or the CC button on YouTube's player.

Open CART captioning is scheduled for most in-person events.
